Humble Carrot Cake with Clementine Icing

Who doesn't love a good carrot cake? It's an old fashioned classic that everyone's mum or grandma has a special recipe for, it can be full of nuts and fruit or just plain and simple. It's a cake that seems healthy and wholesome; my sister even ate a slice for breakfast this morning. I found this recipe on one of my favourite food blogs, la tartine gourmande, and adapted it to contain all sorts of goodies like quinoa flour, organic hazelnuts, almonds, figs and walnuts. Topped with a zesty cream cheese icing, I think it satisfies!
